Mental Yoga Sunday :: Issue No. 26

I bought my brother some gift-wrap for Christmas. I took it to the Gift Wrap department and told them to wrap it, but in a different print so he would know when to stop unwrapping.

Mental Yoga Sunday :: Issue No. 22 Ventipop

Mental Yoga Sunday this week features long reads I’ve posted the previous five days in the Daily Grind posts. Something is Wrong on the Internet made me wildly uncomfortable because I have two young children online, Weinstein’s Army of Spies made me queasy as well; hard to believe someone’s mind works that way. Fake Friends and Family reinforces how truly strange I think the Japanese culture is. Both VR on Social Issues and When will the Earth try to kill us Again made me simultaneously eager and anxious about the future. The Secret Life of a Mall Kiosk Worker answered a lot of questions I’ve always had about those lurkers in the mall halls. And Guns by Stephen King is something everyone should read…especially our elected officials.

I think some of us need to retrain our attention spans to be longer than the time it takes for an Instagram post to load. Here are my favorite long read pieces of the week:

Twitter-Free, Embrace Absurdity & New Music Friday :: Daily Grind #158 Ventipop

“Distracted from distraction by distraction”
T.S. Eliot

My Twitter account got deleted yesterday for 11 magical minutes and it was the most peace and quiet I’ve had since the birth of my son in 2007. Oh, glorious silence! I think I’d enjoy solitary confinement for a month before it started bothering me. But alas, the world is a noisy place and most of us would go crazy without engaging in the conversation. And by “engaging in the conversation” I absolutely mean screaming the loudest, cursing out a stranger on Twitter, using the biggest font or liking a picture of food on Facebook. Evolution at its finest. I’m telling you, Ventipop keeps me sane. (People that know me well would say that’s subjective.) Enjoy this Friday edition of the Grind.
